Have you joined the Character: Female challenge yet?

A couple of months ago we started our new 3D Character: Female challenge to encourage designers, artists and enthusiasts to create and promote a more welcoming environment for females in VR and game development.

There's still time for designers to jump into the Female character challenge, which has the greatest prize pool of all previous challenges thanks to our wonderful partners at Quixel, 3D-Coat, FOX Renderfarm, Cebas, Marmoset and Allegorithmic.

With the competition heating up, we’ve picked a couple of our favorite submissions thus far, but, with more than ten days to go, we expect to see many more great models enter the challenge!
